The eighteenth-century America lived very differently then they do today, like people spoke only English but their words didn't always mean what they mean now. They were christians, their Christianity was different from the religion of modern churches. They had many family structures the same as ours today, but the children worked and the women were not allowed to own property, and many people married without a legal contract. Most of the tools today are far less complicated then the ones they used back then. In families the man has the legal rights over his wife, children, servants, and slaves. The man was also to provide food, clothes, and shelter for his family. The mother would stay at home as a " maid " . Women would usually have up seven to ten children.
Some of the businesses they had in colonial times was wagon making, grist mills, cotton gins, saw mills, cane mills, cabinet and furniture making, and much more. In 1790 North Carolina ranked third in population of the U.S., then in 1820 it slipped into fifth because the emigration from states to new states. During the early 1830's a great depression set in for North Carolina The loss of West Indies trade has lessened demand for lumber and heavy British taxation on tobacco depressed that market. North Carolina cotton began feeling the impact of new cotton fields in Gulf Coast states.
Poor transportation exacerbated the problems. Few navigable rivers and little road building had the state and residents at a serious disadvantage.
Back in the 1700's to 1800's North Carolina was BIG in the Tobacco industry. People ( wealthy land owners ) would come to North Carolina to settle for the crop. Farming and industry was built around Tobacco, and two of the four largest cities developed as company towns for the world’s largest tobacco companies. North Carolina was also known for their cotton. Beginning about 1840, cotton became a leading cash crop for North Carolina farmers.
